Kobe, Japan - Mexico's Jhonny Gonzalez (48-7, 42KOs) redeemed himself by knocking out Hozumi Hasegawa (29-4, 12KOs) in the fourth round to win the WBC featherweight crown at the War Memorial Hall. Hasegawa was making the first defense of the vacant title he won from Juan Carlos Burgos last November. Gonzalez wanted revenge after Toshiaki Nishioka traveled to Mexico in May of 2009 and knocked Gonzalez out in three rounds.

In almost a mirror image of the Hasegawa's defeat to Fernando Montiel, the Japanese boxer was doing very well for the first three rounds, and was caught cold by a single punch from Gonzalez in the fourth for the knockout.

On the undercard:

WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka (38-4-3, 24KOs) stopped Mauricio Munoz (21-3, 9KOs) in the ninth round. Munoz started well, but faded in the later rounds and fell apart in the ninth as the champion battered him with big shots.

WBC super featherweight champion Takahiro Aoh (21-2-1, 10KOs) stopped Humberto Gutierrez (28-3-1, 20KOs) in the fourth round after landing a crippling shot to the body.

[QUOTE=Dominicano Soy!]Rewatching it again, only gave Hasegawa the 2nd round.[/QUOTE] How did you not give him the third. Maybe I need to watch it, but all Gonzalez landed were body jabs. Hasegawa was the one feinting and he landed his right hook pretty hard and his left was getting there too....

Why don't Lopez fight Gonzalez instead of giving Marquez a rematch? I'm not saying Gonzalez would beat him. But at least it would be something different.

Good for Gonzalez...I think we have Juanma's next fight. Mexico - PR rivalry and unify.

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]I didn't see, but is it time we start calling Hasegawa's chin glass? That's two now where he was apparently winning and then got caught.[/QUOTE] He took some big shots from Burgos. Both Jhonny and Montiel are big punchers, no shame in losing and it wasn't a quick stoppage ...
